I was photographing in Bethany a few weeks ago and noticed a sign....Office Space for RENT. Is this it?
Just a few weeks prior, a friend and I had left our Midtown studio so I was looking for something new. I had been nervous. I have been praying, but not sure what the Lord had in store for me. It wasn't long until I heard a clear voice say, "You will have a space, be patient." So I was looking but not crazy gazelle style of looking, just keeping my eyes open in my everyday errands and work.
I was photographing in Bethany on a Sunday afternoon, when I noticed the sign. I was a little curious. Then, as we drove to the second shooting location, I say another sign for the same place AND a third sign on the door of the space for rent. It was kinda like the Lord was saying...here you are!! The next day, I called and was able to look at the space. It was what I was looking for! This space is not just ANY space, it has a story that goes back YEARS!
When I started photography around 2004, I dreamed that one day I would have a studio space. I remember a few years later, meeting a photographer in Bethany that had the coolest studio. Her studio was in the heart of Bethany. She had an office downstairs, then upstairs she had several shooting rooms. I remember thinking.... "One day I want to have a space like this." You guys....this is my new space. This feels me with such joy that it brings tears to my eyes. The space has changed a little bit since she was in it...its been divided up. I am in the upstairs area.
The last week has been a roller coaster. I'm stepping out in faith and doing it SCARED!!
Current situation: My landlord is AMAZING!! The space was painted and finished in 2 days. I am currently moving in, but here are the BEFORE photos of the space. Hopefully in the next few days I'll have current photos. 'Til then...
